Finished my bird banner and put it up in the downstairs bathroom. It's right next to my little bird dish holding soap eggs.

Show and Tell Monday

I stitched this heart years and years ago when I first started collecting buttons.
Bought this bird a long time ago at a small shop in Wisconsin.

One of my all time favorite prints. I love birds!

An antique milk glass vase....a gift from my son and daughter-in-law.

                              This is an old bottle my daughter-in-law, Lori, found at the local antique shop for me.
                               She is a sweetheart! Can't wait to decorate it when I can find some free time.

Craft Room

                                            Today is going to be a good day to clean the craft room and get some scrapbooking stuff out. I am making scrapbooks for all of my six grandchildren.

EmmaClaire( my new dressform)

This is "EmmaClaire" my wire dress form I found. My granddaughters came up with two different names that I put together. Right now she is holding an old lace sweater, ribbons, and brooches I have made in the last several weeks. She is standing in the corner of my craft room. I think I will try and find a vintage dress for her this spring.
